Moscow Open 2015.1.31 Yesterday! Position after 21 moves. Black seems quite ok. If 22.f4(?) Nd3! even gives Black the edge! But appearances rarely correspond to reality in chess. Often the truth is hidden…

Gibraltar Masters 2015.1.28 Position after 18 moves. A sharp Najdorf Sicilian. Black is counting on his King being safe behind his mass of pawns while he drums up counterplay on the Queenside.
